Abstract

This paper argues that although women were the major producers of income generating crops in Uganda's dominant peasant households, they were marginalised from major decisions and control of the resources. Household and meso-level marketing structures and institutions were within patriarchal power relations, and women had to reposition themselves vis รข vis household resources through direct and indirect struggle. There were, however, also cases of mutual cooperation. The paper points out that there have been gradual changes, especially during the era of reforms. However, these have not yet achieved power and institutional transformation for the meaningful positioning of women with regard to household resources.
